Make Some Lily Flowers

A new flower tutorial! I am in love with the new Prima Corine flowers... but of course they are hard to find here in Canada and I just needed to see if I could make my own version (for a fraction of the price and with adding an extra petal layer :)


Here is what you will need:
- 3 flower shapes with 3 pointed petals. I just used my Marvy punch and hand-cut the petal corners off. I must say this is my favorite flower punch because of the versatility and embossed feature. You can cut out a similar shape and trace it.
- Water to mist
- Scrapbook chalk or chalk ink (I prefer scrapbook chalk for this and actually found some at my dollar store!)
- White paint or snow writer, puff paint or glitter - whatever best suits your project style
- A decorative brad or a few pearls or stamens for the center
- A rounded object (like a Sharpie pen or painbrush end)
- A foam mat (like a computer mouse pad)
- Glue of choice


Step 1: Make your template.

Step 2: Cut your 3 flower layers.

Step 3: Water mist the layers and pinch the towards the middle of each petal to create a crease.

Step 4: While still damp press the center into the foam mat to raise the petals. Let dry completely before the next step.

Step 5: Add some chalk or ink to the center and over the crease for definition.

Step 6: Glue your layers and press all together into the mat to form a little space for the centre pearls to fit into.

Step 7: Paint or...
glitter your tips

Step 8: Glue your decorative center and you are ready to add to your project!
